It’s easy to love fashion, but it’s not quite as easy to commit to. If you look in most lady’s wardrobes, you will find that it isn’t the creative playground of a woman who has nailed her look. More often than not it’s a hodge-podge of this and that which will have you thinking ‘these will never go together’. Building a wardrobe is a real endeavor so here, we’re going to look at how you demystify it.


Identify the staples

The staples aren’t going to be the most stand-out choices in your lineup. They are, however, going to serve as the basis from which you develop a great look. serves as an excellent, nigh-comprehensive look at the staples you should fill your wardrobe with. With the basics, you have the bones of an outfit to take with you when you go shopping. You can switch and swap when you have them with you, ensuring that when you get something, you’re actually getting something that goes with what you already have.

Be a shameless deal hound

So, how do you go about finding the pieces that those staples help you pick out? The wrong way to do it is by busting your whole bank balance. Instead, be an opportunist. Catch chances like when they pop around. Spend more time looking for the basics rather than making the label your priority. Most importantly, for goodness sake, put the fear of the thrift shop behind you. There are plenty of gems to be found in secondhand shops. They might not always be your size, but more often than not, you’ll find something you can take home for next-to-nothing.

Find your statement piece

A woman should make a unique imprint wherever she goes. To that end, you should consider finding a statement piece of your own that makes sure people know that it’s you. Accessories are the best statement pieces, you’ll find. However, if you and your friends are all browsing the same places for accessories, you’ll all have the same statement pieces. Avoid the eye-daggers and try lesser known designers like those on Etsy or consider going above and beyond and getting something custom designed.

Say goodbye to your babies

One thing that clogs up a style more than anything is old clothes that you don’t wear. Yes, we know that there are going to be some pieces that you absolutely adore but have just never found the look to pull them off. But they have to be cleared out if you want a wardrobe that makes it a lot easier to coordinate an outfit. You don’t have to give them for free, either. There are plenty of places to sell your old clothes online for a little cash that can be put back into getting something you will actually wear.

It doesn’t have to be the biggest journey of self-exploration nor the most expensive trip down town you have ever taken. Hopefully the points above have given you an idea of the roadmap that’s going to help you finally nail your style.
